with more learning from the very hungry caterpillar we made butterflies.
the paper used represented all the foods eaten in the book (the yellow for swiss cheese even had holes in it).
the children used precut butterfly papers and glued the food papers on, trimming as they liked.
at the end we layered circles like the face/eyes of the caterpillar and added those.
i can’t think of this story without hearing a group of children saying, “…a boooooooooooootiful butterfly.”
